Notes for HENRY DYER:
Notes for HENRY DYER:
Henry was a "merchant, a shipbuilder, and a man of the highest character for integrity and ability;" his seven sons sustained the family reputation. During the Revolutionary War, Henry Dyer "rendered especially valuable and meritorious service." In 1775, "Henry Dyer, Township No. 4," was second Lieutenant in Captain Eleazer Crabtree's company, stationed at Frenchman's Bay. In 1777, he was captain of a company in Colonel Benjamin Foster's (6th Lincoln Co.) regiment, in service "at Machias when the British ships were in the harbor." In a Roll certified at Machias, October 6, 1778, "Captain --- Dyer, of the Marisheete" (vessel Merry Sheet), appeared in a "return of officers and men under Col. John Allan, Continental Agent and Commander-in-Chief of Eastern Department, stationed for the defence of Machias; said Dyer reported as having been a prisoner with the enemy and as having died since previous return was made." Henry Dyer may have been captured and held prisoner, but he was not dead -- since, in 1780, he was captain of a company of "Rangers ... raised in No. 4, Gouldsborough, Pleasant River, Frenchman's Bay and Narraguagus," under instructions of "Col. John Allan, commanding officer at Machias." Colonel John Allan's efforts were confined to the onerous task of "thwarting the schemes of the British, and keeping the Indians from the St. John to the Penobscot friendly and true to the American cause."

This same battle as someone in James T Avery's family was kiled in.
